The Implementing Cisco Multicast (MCAST) v2.0 course covers the fundamentals of IP multicasting. These fundamentals include multicast applications, sources, receivers, group management, and IP multicast routing protocols (such as Protocol Independent Multicast [PIM]) used within a single administrative domain (intradomain). The issues of switched LAN environments and reliable IP multicasting are covered as well. The course provides technical solutions for simple deployments of IP multicast within a provider or customer network. The curriculum provides the configuration and troubleshooting guidelines for implementation of IP multicast on Cisco routers. The labs provide students with the hands-on experience that is needed to successfully deploy IP multicast.
